Guardiola is getting over his lack of full-backs by using Aguero in a right-back role next season

Pep Guardiola has a cunning plan to get around his lack of full-backs next season.

The maverick Spaniard will train Sergio Aguero to play right-back after missing out on the signing of Dani Alves to PSG.

An unofficial club insider, Lee Satchell, confirmed the news via his source Puhctek Otamot earlier today.

Satchell said: “Guardiola hasn’t been able to sign a full-back for toffee during this transfer window.

“They’re all terrified that as soon as they join he’ll try and get them to play centre-back or in goal and it’ll ruin their career.

“He’s tried Dani Alves, Kyle Walker and Ryan Bertrand. He’s even been trying to call Carl Jenkinson.

“But none of them seem to fancy it.

“So he’s going to re-train Aguero to play at right-back. We thought he was joking, but he’s fully going for it.

“The lads came back for their first training session yesterday and Sergio couldn’t believe it.

“Pep came up and handed him the number two shirt and told him to channel his inner Pablo Zabaleta.

“He thinks he’s going to transform him into the next Roberto Carlos. But Sergio can’t hand in his transfer request quick enough.”
